Kristin and Aaron talk about the Chicago Auto Show, what we saw, and why auto shows are awesome for consumers. Looking to buy a car? Wondering what the latest technologies are? Wondering who’s making what kind of vehicle now? Love old cars and weird one-off museum pieces? All of that and more are at the auto show!
Kristin talks with FCA’s Mary Ann Capo about the 2021 Chrysler Pacifica minivan, now with AWD and a new infotainment system. This is a big step forward for the best-selling minivan and adds something that many of us have wanted for a long time: all-wheel drive.
Learn the details and ins and outs of this setup straight from the source.
In this episode, Kristin and Aaron look at the freshly-unveiled Gladiator Mojave at the Chicago Auto Show.

Plus someone throws things at us. Check it out!

In this segment, Kristin talks to Mary Ann Capo of Fiat-Chrysler about the new changes to America’s most popular minivan, the Pacifica, and its new Voyager sibling. The two women look at the van twins and talk about the new S trim and more. Check these beauties out!
We talk about the new Toyota Sequoia TRD Pro and the TRD Sport sibling it shares the showroom with. Both are new renditions of the Sequoia SUV, bringing new life to the often forgotten sport ute in Toyota’s lineup. The Sequoia is highly capable and very roomy and its off-road cred is undeniable in the new TRD Pro package. Here’s our take.
A “set and forget” car is one that doesn’t require anything but seat and mirror adjustment the first time you get in. From there, everything is, by default, probably perfect. These are the most user-friendly and simplest of vehicles and are what those who aren’t necessarily automotive nutjobs (like we are) would probably prefer. We talk about pickup trucks, minivans, SUVs, and more that all fit this definition to us. Watch this episode of Drive Mode and see what we mean!
Kristin teams up with Teia Collier of DallasSingleMom.com (https://dallassinglemom.com/) while sitting in the new Land rover Defender at the Houston Auto Show. What’s it like? How does it feel? Is this really a Defender? All questions answered in this episode. Plus Teia channels her inner Aaron and a funky breakdown happens at the end. Cheggitout!
